The Patterned Petals Digest #6 Is Instagram Killing Blogs? & The Maldives

What a month, I have been to Jersey and had a very relaxing Easter holiday, and blog photos can be taken in the evening now too. I have been writing blog posts every day this month and I am so glad that I have managed to do it! It has been a challenge and I didn’t realise how challenging it would be but it was worth every second. I love creating content for my blog and I was always so scared that I would run out of ideas but actually trying to come up with 30 blog posts was easier than I thought, and I have been able to plan even more content than I thought possible. It just shows that if you do more of something you love even more ideas come to you.
